Learn more about how NINDS supports scientific conferences and some research resources in specific situations.
|R13||Conference grants support recipient sponsored scientific meetings and conferences that may facilitate advancement of NINDS mission objectives. NOTE: Prior approval is required for an R13 application to be accepted.|
|U13||In some instances, NINDS may determine that a conference grant would benefit from significant NINDS involvement. In those cases, an R13 would be converted to a U13. Applicants do not generally apply for a U13 unless it is under a specific, solicited (not investigator-initiated) funding opportunity announcement.|
For more detailed application information and requirements, view the R13/U13 Guidelines.
Research Resource Mechanisms
|S10||The NIH Office of Research Infrastructure programs supports funding for research resources ranging from basic (lower cost) to shared and high-end instrumentation. For more information, please view the S10 Instrumentation Programs webpage.|
|Contracts||NINDS employs contracts to support some research resources such as brain, cell, and other tissue banking.|
|Administrative Supplements||In very select, specific circumstances such as loss of equipment required for the successful completion of an already funded active award. See the NINDS Administrative Supplements page for more information.|
